US - The number of pig farm samples that are confirmed positive for porcine epidemic diarrhoea virus (PEDV) in the last week was 46 and four premises were confirmed with porcine deltacoronavirus (PDCoV). None had the dual infection (PEDV and PDCoV).
For the latest week – 22 to 28 March – there were 46 new confirmed positive premises for PEDV and one presumed positive, according to the latest report from USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).
For the same period, four premises were confirmed and one presumed positive for PDCoV; none was confirmed or presumed positive with the dual infection.
The total numbers of premises with confirmed positive status for the current week are 1,103, 51 and 45 for PEDV, PDCoV and the dual infection, respectively.
Since 5 June, for PEDV, there have been 1,169 confirmed positive premises, 416 presumed positive and 54 previously positive premises that have attained negative status.
For PDCoV, the total for the same period are 57, 28 and five, respectively. For the dual infection, the totals are 47, 27 and one, respectively.
